BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Clear body, deep orange golden in colour. Tall off-white head, thick with very good retention.Medium lacing left behind. Weirdly nice aroma, fruity, On tap at the Brugge Beer Festival: 2nd Feb 2014: from notes. Unclear copper body with a thin off-white wisp or two. The nose a floral and fruit mix sprinkled with sugar, some banana maybe. Taste is less floral and more fruity, again bananas but now joined by peaches and a yeastiness. Gets semi-bitter towards the end of each sip. Medium to thin body feel, carbonatiion is a little high, almost fizzy.

Vaiz (3568) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle at home. Deep orange pour, huge very solid off-white head. Aroma of some floral hops, spicy malts and slight sugar. Flavor is mostly bitter and spicy, with nice hops and quite a solid malt base. Missing some unique character, but a very decent brew. A tiny hint of metal in the finish but that does not spoil anything.

Martinus (3063) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2011
Pale light amber with a cream head which isn’t sticking around long. Aroma of malts, some citrus fruits, and some caramel. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, yeast and only a slight fruitiness, which is rather unexpected given the fruity smell. Dry finish. Rather thin but altogether not an unpleasant beer at all. (from tap @ De Kluizenaar)

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2011
Light amber coloured beer with average carbonation and a large white to off-white head. Fruity sweet malty and refreshing aroma. Full palate; Finish is slightly malty, bitter, short yeasty with some fruity hints. Nicely balanced, good brew.
